is that officials here in colorado haven't officially identified the suspect but our local affiliate says their law enforcement sources have told them it is evan spencer ebble. he is a known white supremacist. he was involved in this high speed chase and shoot out. about ten hours drive from here in colorado yesterday in texas. now we do have some home video shot by a viewer at the end of that chase. so let's take a quick listen to that. so, again, this is the end of a high speed chase down in texas. what we know from authorities there is that it was a routine traffic stop. and that's when they say the suspect shot a deputy three times. he led them on a chase, shooting out the window. he crashed into a big rig. he then got out of the car, continued shooting until he was finally shot. he was airlifted to the hospital and was considered brain dead at that time. but what they have been able to do is to suspect that there's some link between the car he was driving there and a car that was spotted here in colorado when the head of the prison department here was shot dead outside his home on tuesday. and
